There’s no recovering from a hangover under a blanket with painkillers and fast food for Prometheus star Michael Fassbender. The actor recently sat down with Esquire UK (via Huffington Post) to chat about his craft, partying and fame. To switch things up a little, he also kept his clothes on for the photoshoot.
Here are some highlights from the interview…
On his love of dancing:
“I like to dance. Ha! You know, I enjoy myself when I go out. When we were in Berlin and I went out with my parents, we were out till three in the morning, we were all out dancing.”
On his secret hangover cure:
“I still listen to Slayer, man! I just put them on the other day, still listen to Metallica. AC/DC brilliant…If you’re a little bit hungover, put on AC/DC, it’s like there’s no room for [the hangover] any more, the anxiety’s all gone.”

On now having to consider his behavior since becoming famous:
“The thing is I don’t like to filter my behavior, but I have a feeling that might be the case now…I don’t want to be in the newspapers. I just want to keep what I do on screen and that’s it.”
On being seduced by the trappings of fame:
“It would be wrong of me to say that I don’t get seduced by certain things. That things don’t become tempting.”
On his temptations:
“Well, you know, sort of, money! How much money does one need? Let’s start with that, that’s a pretty good one. Greed, things like that. Vanity, believing the hype. You have to keep an eye on those things.”
On keeping grounded:
“There’s another side of me that’s very simple. I keep my lifestyle pretty simple and my possessions are pretty simple.”
